In all of her time blogging, I have never seen Marisa balk when it comes to shamelessly promoting someone's art, events or merchandise. However, when she opened this blog to a group-authored format, I'm sure she had no idea the amount of Shameless Self-Promotion of which I'm capable (and I promise to keep my self-aggrandizing personality on frequent Time-Outs in the corner of the other room).
Some of us are old enough to remember when the corner of Rivington and Essex was a decent place to cop black-tar and Latin transvestite prostitutes - rather than the glass-and-steel luxury hotels and condominiums that keep popping up like pimples on high school Picture Day. But that doesn't mean that you still can't find some blisteringly loud rock and roll in an questionably aromatic basement club in the LES.
So in an effort to gear up for the release of our upcoming album, "From Soil to Shale," my stoner-metal trio, Dogs of Winter, will be taking the Fat Baby stage at 8pm tonight, followed by my old friends in Lucky Ghost.
Your attendence is requested and earplugs are suggested.
TONIGHT - MAR 18th - 8pm Dogs of Winter at Fat Baby 112 Rivington St (at Essex) - NYC w/Lucky Ghost at 9pm cover charge: $7
